Game fans will be aware of the well respected Gamecentral website, they have been reviewing games on Teletext for many years. They've had a hands on demo of the PS3 in 3D, I think they like it!
Expensive at the moment but getting cheaper and better all the time.

Gaming is the only viable usage of the technology.

From the reviews I have read by the Teletext team they know very little about anything & always seem to low-score titles they review (compared with the mainstream reviewers).

3D Gaming is a fad (much like Motion Control input will be on the Sony & Microsoft platforms will be), but it will start to become more widely accepted once the price of the units drops in 12 to 24 months time after launch.

Sony is also recommending that developers create 3D titles with a maximum resolution of 720p too as frame rates suffer for anything above that.

I agree with you in some respects, however they are one of the few sites that actually use the full 10 point scale, where games 6 and above are good and only excellent games get 9 or 10. Too many review sites simply go with what everyone else does, Edge are another one, I hardly ever agree with their reviews but they are staffed by well respected (in the gaming industry) journalists.

Speaking of motion control, fp, did you see the Echochrome II video I posted HERE
Last post in the Kinect pricing thread.
Now THAT is an interesting use of motion control.
